My panties got un-bunched when Rodgers lifted the Lombardi over his head in Dallas. If Favre gets booed in Lambeau, the SOB deserves every bit of it, and by now he should be man enough to accept the criticism of a situation he completed created and is 100% responsible for.

I'm with you. That ring in 2010 pretty much drained all bitterness, especially since the Packers trounced his team twice on the way to winning it.

To me he just got exposed as a bit of a phony. He was portrayed in the media as this great family man, who loved football with all his heart and all that, yet there was the sexting issue with the Jets, he was somewhat notorious for not working much in the offseason. Added to that was the yearly will he or won't he retire charade, which I perceived to be his doing to get people to drool over him. Maybe I'm wrong, and most people can just look at what he did on the football field and that's fine. Just for me, all of that contributes to how I remember him.

I still enjoyed watching what he did on the football field most of the time, and think he should get his number retired.

I love people pandering to him like a battered woman going back to her abuser after he says. "Huh... sorry." like Bluto after he smashed the guitar.

I am apathetic over the whole issue. He did some good/great things on the field. He did some pretty lousy things on the field. (Most of the time it was because of his ego. Both the good and the bad.)

He could be decent at times off the field but then again he was pretty disgusting a number of times off field as well.

In the end he looked and acted like a little weasel. Not only slobbering all over the place in order to get to MN and screw Uncle Teddy but he also told Cutler to beat GB after MN lost to the bares.

His number will be retired. He will go into the Hall and life will go on. Or it won't. In either case it just doesn't matter. I figure the worst thing you can do to Brett is not care about him or what he does.

I'll sound a little nerdy here, but there was a Simpsons Halloween segment in the 90s where characters from ad campaigns turned into giant monsters destroying the city. To defeat them the citizens just had to ignore them since the ad. Monsters survived due toattention.

I think he definitely cares. And he should. He's one of the greatest players in franchise history. In fact, he should do a better job of showing Packer fans that he does care. Why should Packer fans care about him if he doesn't care? Part of Favre's media persona is his whatever attitude. It hurts him in this case, in my view. Show fans that you care, and they'll welcome you back. But it's harder to move on when he acts like this isn't big deal. It is.

I would never boo Brett Favre back in Lambeau. I did not like his lack of class when he left us, but I'm most appreciative of his time with us, plus ALL the Packer nation understands that, have absorbed it, and ultimately, are simple Wisconsin folk that will forgive and forget.


Brett Favre is welcome back in Wisconsin, our latent passions notwithstanding. He will not be booed.


This is not a place like Philadelphia. This is Green Bay, Wisconsin.

This is history, and does nothing for the 2014 Green Bay Packers. I just thought I'd mention that.
